Inhofe: U.S. Defense Budget Must Match Threats Posed by China’s Military Build-Up
By Inhfoe.Senate, April 21, 2021
U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), lead Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC), spoke on the Senate floor today about China’s imposing military build-up and the need for the United States to increase investment in national defense to deter Chinese aggression.
The other week, President Biden released his “skinny budget” — which gave us a topline for defense of $715 billion. Make no mistake: This is a cut because it doesn’t keep up with inflation
It definitely doesn’t provide the three to five percent real growth we really need to take on the threats posed by our adversaries like China.
When it comes to China, there are two big reasons we need to make sure our budget matches our strategy. Number one: China is spending more on their military than ever before. Number two: As a result, they’re getting more technologically advanced, and starting to sway the military balance of power in their favor.https://gellerreport.com/2021/04/senator-inhofe-u-s-defense-budget-must-match-threats-posed-by-chinas-military-build-up.html/
